Whats /g/ thoughts on the Raspberry Pi 2? I just got mine and its awesome, you can really use it as a mini Desktop now.
Do /g/ faggots still hate on this piece of hardware? I realize the first model was slow but this thing is a speed demon!
friendly reminder how stupid the people are who use this piece of shit
I actually ordered one along with some class 10 sdcards and I'm looking to make a rather small htpc to stream movies through plex
I got one of the old model B's and I thought it was fast enough, I just didn't really have any use for it.
Like, it was a decent desktop replacement since I've stopped playing vidya, but I already have a desktop so that doesn't really matter. It's nice to have a backup in case this one ends up down for repairs, but that's about it.
On a semi-related note, are you using raspbian and if yes is racket in the repos? I'm thinking about digging my rasp pi out and using it for the SICP since my desktop is finicky with linux and am too lazy to check myself.

No Arch fag here, it is in the repos though here. Installing Arch shouldn't be too hard, its available off NOOBS, just grab the NOOBS network install cause you need Ethernet to install Arch Linux anyway. Arch Linux comes with no installed GUI but there are guides floating around the net, I am sure you can find one.
There are a lot of peripherals that can work with PCIe. There are peripherals that attach to PCIe (SATA for example) and make even more peripherals work. It would add a lot of potential to the RPI2 especially since it wouldn't share the same bus as the USB & ethernet.
I'd buy a RPI2 just because it's cheap and it works, but I already have a Cubietruck and Tegra K1 and don't even have a use for those besides NAS and torrent box.
/g/ will never undertstand the concept of 'i use x because it has a larger community surrounding it'. for the most part, people here want to own and use useless, esoteric shit, like freeBSD, or tiling window managers, or haskell, or emacs, or fucking chinese ripoff raspberry pis that cost 3x as much
What if we used a riser with USB cable instead? Connecting the cable to a USB port I mean (rather than connecting it to the PCIe adapter).
arch isn't on noobs anymore (doesn't appear to be anyway, didn't actually check) but the instructions on their site are dead simple.
1. partition sd card
2. extract this image to the larger partition
3. move this folder from the larger partition to the smaller partition
5. eject card and have fun.
>implying limited edition of the first of its kind and overpaying isn't common for everything
fucking limited edition baseball cards, pieces of paper.. go for hundreds of thousands
Pic is of the latest NOOBS but for the Raspberry Pi 2 than yes you have to format and install it the hard way. The person who I was replying to however has a old model B so pic is relevant.
The PS1 emulated fine on the old Raspberry Pi, I don't know about N64. That was slow as hell and I haven't got around installing the N64 emulator. Also don't know about Dreamcast.
Eh, never really tried emulators on the original Rpi B (256mb). Gave an nes emulator a shot around 6 months after the board was released and that was terribly slow, so I never tried it again.
It was 6 (or less...I bought it day 1) months in, not a whole lot of optimization yet. Note that at the same time pretty much any video would play without issue. Default split, if it was choosable at that time.
That and emulation is mainly a cpu issue, not a gpu issue.
